The car on starting from cold, idles up and down for a few minutes until warm. The idle then settles down to about 800. Is the ICV located at back of the engine when looking into it from the headlights? I disconnected a connector to this and the car died while running, I thought this should increase the revs to about 2000?

If I start the car with this connected the car seems to have no idle problems, the resistance on this part is showing about 8.5Ohms and the voltage seems to be fine when checking this.

I have read this should be easy to remove and clean, but there don't seem to be the hoses running of this although its difficult to see around it? Is this the correct part?

Any help is appreciated it....

Thanks
